Reclaiming Vibrant Sex after 50
If you find yourself in your 50’s, unsatisfied sexually but at a loss for what to do about it, we can help. For whatever reason, your sex life has taken a backseat in your priorities and whether you’ve been married for 25 years, separated from a partner, in a new relationship or not in a sexual relationship at all, it’s not too late to reclaim your sexuality and achieve the satisfying and pleasurable sex life that you deserve.
As we age, our bodies face new challenges physically but our minds also face challenges through stress and lifestyle changes. Balancing these challenges by adapting and creating a new sexual routine is necessary to stay vibrant sexually in your 50s and beyond. Our trained Sex Therapists will help by identifying the challenges you are facing, develop strategies to manage these challenges and help you reclaim your sexuality in order to reach the height of your sexual potential.
Dealing with Menopause
The majority of women in their 50’s will experience symptoms of menopause which may disrupt their sex lives. The declining oestrogen levels associated with menopause can cause symptoms such as vaginal dryness, hot flushes, sleeplessness and joint pain. These symptoms often impact a woman’s levels of desire and arousal and can make sex painful or uncomfortable. However, this doesn’t have to mean that you have to sacrifice pleasurable sex! If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and they are impacting your sex life, our trained sex therapists can help you manage and treat these issues to regain a comfortable and satisfying sex life.
Staying clear of STIs
One of the major issues facing newly single or sexually active women in their 50’s are sexually transmitted infections. Many women over the age of 50 who are single and sexually active again, but have been through menopause see no need to use condoms or contraceptives since they are at no risk of pregnancy. However, STIs are becoming increasingly more popular amongst older adults. This is where going back to your safer sex knowledge from 20 or 30 years ago becomes important! Our trained sex therapists can help you best manage the risks in a way that works for you and allows you to live the sex life you want while keeping safe and healthy.
